Whether you are a brand new stitcher or a veteran to the craft, taking a class in the Barnyard at YG is a great way to explore the magic of creating with sticks and string! The Garden hosts a variety of classes, from beginner all the way up to the most advanced techniques. Click here to see the current calendar!


Take a stroll through the virtual Garden and browse the collection of yarns that Lindsay has brought together, as well as the tools and gadgets to make your crafting a breeze.


Peruse the library of patterns that Lindsay has designed, and get inspired to create your own functional art.


Follow this path into the Blog if you like to create art with sticks and string, read reviews of new yarns and other tools, see peeks into life at the Garden, and don’t mind reading the occasional observations of a wife, mother, artist, and small business owner.

Yarn garden seed club, now in season 3!

Join me for Season Three of YG’s Seed Club!  On the first of each month, August through April, you’ll receive an exclusive seed packet. Included in each packet will be a beautiful skein or two of yarn, along with a pattern (and a few alternate ideas) and a notion/tool. And if you sign up for the Early Bird Membership, you’ll receive a limited edition Mid Mitten Designs Notions bag to store all your new notions (a $15 value!).
Join Now

You can expect the monthly cost to be between $35 and $45. However, because I love to see your smiling faces, members that come to the Garden to pick up their packets by the 10th will receive a $5 discount on their purchase.  All remaining seed packets will be shipped via USPS after the 10th (shipping is free!). As always, details will not be released until the first of each month.  It’s part of the fun!

And if you thought the Club couldn’t get any more fun… I’ll also be hosting a Seed Starter Party on the first Saturday of every month!  Join your fellow members in the Garden as we begin our new projects, and maybe learn a new trick or two.
